@jocaedu Are you sure your controller/usb cable are OK ? 1 gamepad detected implies the keyboard is detected, but not the controller.
As for the image, I don't think there is such a thing as Windows User-Friendly drivers on the Linux, but over USB the controller should be detected ok. Please give more details about your setup - https://retropie.org.uk/forum/topic/3/read-this-first - especially about your controller model and version.
@dankcushions Right, I don't think anyone is doing that, and that certainly wasn't the topic in this thread. I guess you'll say it's not your job to explain, but how is accepting donations for the image which packages non-commercial items different than selling a project made from that same image? It seems to me that Buzz is really upset that their work is being monotized, but saying it's because of the non-commercial emulators. Hence, having your cake and eating it too.
We accept donations for our work on RetroPie-Setup etc - nothing to do with selling other peoples software. We don't sell anything.
I am not happy about people breaking licences, and associating RetroPie with piracy which is happening all the time. I don't have to help anyone sell RetroPie "legally". Why should I ?
@BuZz OK sure thing best of my knowledge I'll supply more details
Running windows 7
Downloaded retropie from Raspberrypi.org
Used the Jessie download link
Used a SD formatter I downloaded
Just trying to load some ROMs onto this thing
I have the Raspberry pi zero 1v 3 (can't see the act led)
16gb SD card with adapter
Power source I'm running off a adsoter
From my cell phone (meets minimum requirements)
You think that maybe the Raspberry could be faulty? (had a big blue stripe drawn on the logo on top) could be a bad refurbished one...
15 days later I finally got enough time and another sdcard to try it again. Confirmed: the problem was the old sdcard. Sorry for the false alarm. Or let's be optimistic, a false positive is better than a real bug. :-)
